The location of the land of the Amorites soon led the Mesopotamians to extend the term Amurru to mean “all land to the westward” or “west” in general. The evidence indicates that the contacts of these Amurru with Mesopotamia were sporadic and that their immigration into the Tigris-Euphrates valleys was a slow movement of small groups of people until the end of the third millennium.
